Unknown gunmen stormed a mainly Christian-dominated Jos community overnight and hacked eight members of a family to death in the latest violence to hit the region, officials said Sunday.

Plateau State Information commissioner Yiljap Abraham, who took reporters to the residence of the victims in Tatu, north of the administrative capital Abuja, regretted the rising spate of sectarian killings in the state.

The victims were a father, mother and their six children, he said.



The killings happened just as an explosive device was found in a market area in the volatile state’s Riyom district early Sunday.

An old man was said to have spotted the explosive device at the market square and took it to his room thinking that he had found something valuable.

A military officer, Sergeant Willford Egwu, who showed journalists the device said that it could have exploded but for a weak battery.

Jos, the state capital, and the surrounding area have been hit by waves of violence between Christian and Muslim ethnic groups that have left hundreds dead in recent years.

The region lies in the so-called Middle Belt between the mainly Muslim north and predominately Christian south of Africa’s most populous nation.

A family of eight including a three-year-old boy, was killed near Jos, the Plateau State capital, yesterday morning.

Last month, eight members of a family were killed.

The victims of Sunday’s attack were murdered by yet to be identified assailants at Heipang in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area.

Among the victims were the head of the household, Mr Chollom Gyang, his wife, Hannatu and six children, including the three-year-old.


Mark Lipdo, an organiser for a non-profit group, Stefanos Foundation, said besides the eight family members, three others were also killed yesterday.

A News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent, who visited the house, observed that some of the victims had deep machete cuts all over their bodies; others suffered gunshot injuries.

Mr Emmanuel Dachollom Loman, Chairman, Barkin Ladi Local Government Area,

told reporters that the assailants came from Mahangar, a Fulani community in the area.

“We have made appeals to the Federal Government; we have told them that the people in the area (Mahangar) have lots of sophisticated weapons, but government has refused to do anything about it.

“I personally complained to a Federal Government delegation that came to investigate the killing, last month, of eight members of another family, but our concerns and fears have been ignored.”

He said men of the military Special Task Force (STF) recently searched a house in Mahangar and recovered sophisticated weapons, but that they did not have the will to search the whole community.

Loman warned that unless the weapons in the area were mopped up, they would continue to constitute threats to the communities.

“Now, our people have been pushed to the wall. We have been appealing to them to be calm and not take the laws into their hands. We do not know for how long we can wait for government to protect us.

“If our youths go on the rampage, nobody should blame us; we have asked them to constitute themselves into vigilance groups to defend themselves against aggressors,” he said.

Loman said: “I was sleeping when I received the call at about 12:30 early this morning (yesterday) only to be told that some unknown persons came to attack and killed all members of a family. Few weeks ago, seven members of a family were killed in similar attack. This is becoming too much to bear, government should help us in this local government before people come and wipe all of us out one day. I can’t contain this anymore; it’s too much.

The council boss said: “We are suspecting the Fulani in this attack because this is their route. The Fulani that lived in nearby Mahanger village are heavily armed and I have been crying to government to go to the village in search of arms, but the government is not acting on my cry. You can see that the guns used to attack people here are sophisticated weapons. Government should do something fast before the next attack on another family. Government should go in there and recover all arms they have stockpiled.”

Now i kw some people just went to school for the name and dint learn anything at all. Plateau is a state in the middle belt with about 17 different languages and 99% christians. the hausa`s there re settlers just like the Ibos and Yorubas there. all this attacks re from outsiders and haters of christianity.
